Paraframe I - Stainless, Fine Edge

Like all eight knives in the Paraframe series, the Paraframe I is based on the same minimal frame-lock design. It’s a beautifully simple, open frame knife with a fine edge locking blade that is lightweight, easy to clean and opens effortlessly. Built with a smooth stainless steel handle and a clip for secure travel, the Paraframe I is everything that an everyday carry folder should be.

2 rusty kicsizee - OCT 13, 2014

it so good knife, for everyday use, for good price good blade, BUT in my pocket it started being rust. not the blade, but the handle. and it is very hard to sharpen to very sharp like in the package, when i bought, it is easy to use with one hand

5 Great Blade Andrew W. - AUG 6, 2014

I have had over 3 of these knives so far and all of them are incredible. The Frame Locking is a great design. I have no reserve when putting a little force behind the blade. The Blade keeps a good edge for an everyday carry.
Keep up the good work Gerber. I will be back for more.

5 awesome fritz - NOV 4, 2013

amazing knife love the feel weight design everything I use it to make fishing spears traps the works has slight blade play dont quite know how to fix that but the things pretty bullet proof might just get all I can out of it then get a new one

5 Awesome Louis Effron - OCT 4, 2013

Absolutely spectacular! This knife is amazing quality. And the flick works perfectly and also love how you didn't make it half seraded. And the design for the handle is brilliant. And on top of that the knife's blade is sharp but the locking mechanism works perfectly. Great knife and a very handy one as well!

4 Your Title Jeff - SEP 16, 2013

Great knife. Easy to open easy to use. It's my EDC and I use it all the time. Just wish they made a left hand version but its still fast and easy to use. Still tight and solid after 6 months continuous use. Love it.

4 very handy knife!!! gary - AUG 20, 2013

I have owned my plain blade for two years and carry it every day. I have no complaints at all. I live in the woods and I fish, hunt, and camp. A year ago, while visiting, my 30 yr old son just had to show and tell me about his new knife he loved not knowing I had the exact same one. What a great father-son moment1

5 Retired/Navy, etc Bayou Boy - AUG 15, 2013

I love this knife!!! Easy to open with one hand, light, easy to sharpen, slim design, and is my first pick of ALL my knives for daily use!

3 Okay Connor - JUN 9, 2013

I bought this knife a couple months ago and quickly found out it opens too easily, often with just a slight flick of the wrist. Easy fix if you have the right tools.

4 Would buy serrated BOLTZ - JUN 3, 2013

I would buy serrated if I had the chance again. The knife is good but a fine only has so many uses.

5 Awesome Man RedShadow - MAY 7, 2013

Great knife, very useful. This is my survival knife.

5 work on a farm Austin - APR 27, 2013

Got this knife for $20 at dick's help up very well.. trust me it has gone through some tough work on the farm.. would recommend it to anybody looking for a good reliable knife

5 Retired-Knife Collecter John Bo - FEB 5, 2013

This is my EDC. I am very pleased with it and it is very dependable. I stake my life on it. It opens very easy. It took awhile to get used to open it. The fault lies with my old arthritic 74 year old hands.

4 Good, But Chipped. Nate - JAN 26, 2013

I bought this knife the day before Christmas. Then on Christmas I used it to cut through thin plastic and it chipped. This knife seems reliable and I would buy it again. I am contacting the company and hoping they will replace it. If not I will buy a new one. :\

4 Strange design... MBT - JAN 17, 2013

I like the knife for many attributes, but the handle the design. The space on the hollow handle is enough so that you could cut yourself. I am surprised no one else has mentioned that as an issue. For that reason I wouldn't make it my survival knife...

5 E. Markus - JAN 15, 2013

Love this knife, dad bought it for me for $5 at a pawn shop, what a steal. But this knife really is amazing, I love how lightweight it is, and it really keeps its edge. But what I think is the most impressive thing about it is how tough it is. I was mowing my yard once and dropped it in the grass, ran over it twice with the lawn mower and not a SINGLE scratch on it ( I think it dented the mower blade). This knife is one great buy, never leave home with out it.

5 Your Title Robert Gabrielle - DEC 28, 2012

I believe this is the best all purpose knife made, at any price. Holds a razor edge the blade has as of yet to become wobbly and believe me it gets some rugged use. One fine knife

5 The Man BigOArmyman - DEC 24, 2012

Awesome knife! I like the fact its easy to clean. Im in the Army & Do construction too. I have cut out chaulking in showers, cut out sinks. I love it so much, that when I forgot it at home during Range fire, I sent a person to get me another one. Thank goodiness the PX carried them! Once home I switched back to old faithful!
Only thing better would be light weight Titanium!
I will run mine thru the dishwasher & then lube it for almost no assist opening!

5 Avid outdoorsman Carlos - SEP 19, 2012

I’ve had this knife for about 4 years now, and have used it on many of times hiking, back packing and of course the hardest of them all…car camping. I have sharpened this knife about 5-6 times, but in my opinion, and my son’s, it has a razors edge. I love the size, weight and feel of this knife.

4 novice kevin ledford - AUG 8, 2012

Just got it, very sharp, seems to be well made, perfect size

5 Love it Noah the boy scout - JUL 8, 2012

It is light, compact, and a rugged knife. I've only had it a year but man has it preformed.

P.s. KNIFEMAN just put loob on the joint to make the opening e-z

5 Sick knife Josh - JUN 30, 2012

This knife is the best

2 eh this isnt a good knife knifeman - JUN 12, 2012

its hard to open, the lock is hard, its really stiff, and its not that sharp, buy the air ranger instead of this

4 good knife Brian - APR 18, 2012

I bought this knife for daughter who is a Venture Scout to use and it has held up to 3 years of hard use. The only reason it was replaced this year was she lost it. She now has another one and is very happy with it

2 Not so good... Adam - APR 4, 2012

I have the older version (before they changed the logo), and it was extremely dull when I got it. Never has it been decent for use other than as a screwdriver... I've tried sharpening it and it just doesn't hold an edge. Not the Gerber I remember...

2 Your Title DMK - MAR 21, 2012

Great-until the lock wears out. Nearly sliced open my fingers with it. Other than than that, you cant get a more durable knife. I had a Presto for a few months, And had the inside begin to rust on me( yes-, I submerged it a few times.)

2 everyday user jason - DEC 4, 2011

This is the only gerber ever to give me trouble. The liner lock wore out and no longer truely locks. I can no longer trust it.

5 Great Knife PJR - OCT 23, 2011

A no-frills knife for anyone. Perfect size and weight for any pocket and a great feeling knife in the hand. I own quite a few pocket knives and this is one that I carry on a daily basis. My de facto all purpose cutting tool.

5 Amazing GLH - AUG 20, 2011

I have had this knife for 2 years. I have used the crap outta it and I EDC it every where. I have worn the finish off it and have sharpened it about 3 times. It holds an edge very well. It also sharpens up very well. The size is almost perfect for me. I w
